I am a runner and I almost always have to take my son with me. I use a regular, cheap Graco stroller. Since that stroller was not meant for running on bumpy roads, it is hard to steer. Even if I had a jogging stroller, it's hard running without using my arms. I try running with one arm and steering with the other, but it is difficult and hurts my forearm after a while.
That's when I remembered the Easy Stroll, an ergonomic, one-handed stroller grip I discovered in a giveaway last year. The Easy Stroll was invented by a father who had one child sleeping in the stroller and the other demanding to be held while at the mall. I contacted the company and they sent me an Easy Stroll to review.
*Supports proper posture. I'm really short, so a hunched back is not normally a problem, but when I run I do have to hunch over for more pushing power. Now I can use one arm comfortably and thus run faster.
*Requires no effort. Just relax and walk normally, and the stroller will follow your movement.
*Makes it easier to talk on the phone and to open doors and push a stroller through.
*Clear installation instructions and video.
*Padded where the handle rests on your arm.
*Every level of its production happens in the U.S.
*Free shipping if you want to buy one!
*Although the instructions were easy to follow, I had trouble getting the handle on the rings. My husband, however, did not.
*I still prefer to use two hands when I can. But you taller mamas may prefer it all the time because it's ergonomic.
One of you lucky readers will win an Easy Stroll in the color of your choice, a $30 value! You can also try it risk-free for 30 days--the company pays for return shipping.
